If you're on the hunt for the perfect holiday gifts for the developer who has it all, look no further. We’ve curated a list of 10 must-have items (plus a few more) that strike the perfect balance between practicality and style.
Here’s what we know: developers need to feel satisfied in their work to be productive and organizations need their teams to be productive in order to succeed. But getting there? That’s the challenge. This year’s GitHub Universe is dedicated to helping developers and enterprises alike unlock productivity by leveraging the power of AI, adopting developer-centric security, and prioritizing DevEx.
Since we launched GitHub Copilot, we’ve been at the forefront of generative AI, laser-focused on what these tools can help teams accomplish. (Did you know that 92% of U.S.-based developers are already using AI coding tools both in and outside of work?) If you aren’t already entrenched in generative AI, GitHub Universe will be a great place to get started and dive deeper.
With AI tools enabling teams to move faster than ever to achieve and exceed their goals, natively-embedded security testing needs to match that pace. If you’re going to build and innovate, your code needs to be secure. At GitHub Universe, we’ll show you how.
The final frontier of productivity is DevEx: making sure developers are empowered to do their best work—and how leaders (and the tools they choose) can make all the difference.
GitHub Universe is coming up on November 8-9 and Super-Early Bird tickets are now available. (So, you should fly on over and pick some up!). Below we’re going to dive into what you can expect at our annual event for developers and enterprises across the globe.
Are you ready for it?
With new content formats, stages, interactive sessions, and more, 2023 attendees can take their Universe experience to the next level.
When it comes to learning, we understand that it’s not just about the type of content shared—but about how it’s shared and who’s doing the teaching. That’s why this year, we’ve expanded our campus at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA) in San Francisco to include five stages running concurrently throughout the day, and more than 100+ industry speakers with a wide spectrum of diverse voices to help you grow your career and your business.
Choose from the Main Stage, SF MoMA theater, Screening Room, and Demos & Donuts Stage (you read that right 🍩) for general sessions, fireside chats, customer panels, and more. Take a behind-the-scenes look at the Broadcast Studio where our MCs will be live streaming throughout Universe. We’ll also have the newly minted Discussions Lounge for more peer-to-peer conversations!
Virtual attendees will have access to all the live content on the Main Stage and Broadcast Studio, with access to recordings from the SF MoMA theater and the Screening Room once they’re available on-demand.
We’re excited to announce that in-person attendees will have access to the exclusive beta launch of GitHub certification testing! Attendees will be able to take on-site exams to get certified in GitHub Foundations, GitHub Actions, GitHub Advanced Security, or GitHub Administration.
And back for the second year in a row, attendees will also be able to register for nine unique workshops running from November 7-9.
Sign up for a workshop and get a complimentary voucher for a certification exam, or simply purchase a standalone voucher. You can register for workshops and certifications when you buy your in-person ticket.
We expanded our campus presence at YBCA to curate an even better networking experience for our attendees, customers, and partners.
Walk through The Hub, where you can explore new technology and interact with top partners across the industry. Learn from GitHub product leaders and Universe partners on the Demos & Donuts stage. And make sure to ask all of your burning product questions at the Ask GitHub booth, no pre-booking required!
Of course, it wouldn’t be GitHub Universe without a touch of magic. ✨ If you (or anyone you know, we’re not picky), need some new Octocat gear, visit The Shop for the latest merch.
Past attendees loved our delicious food and beverages. From fresh juices and gourmet coffee to all-day snacks and delightful treats, you’ll have more than enough choices to keep your energy levels up.
You can also stop by The Galleries to immerse yourself in both art and technology. And don’t forget to stroll by The Garden with your snack of choice and watch a live stream of the on-site broadcast studio!
It’s easier than ever to customize your experience at GitHub Universe. Need some help convincing your boss to let you attend? Check out our handy template. Just copy and paste it into an email, fill in your relevant information, and it’s ready for send off.
Whether you join us IRL in San Francisco or virtually from your couch, we want to see you! Virtual tickets are free, and you can always upgrade to an in-person ticket later. And remember, your in-person ticket could be 30% off if you take advantage of our Super-Early Bird discount while supplies last. 😉
